Show and Tell: 2001 A Space Odyssey 1/6 Scale Spacesuit!

Adam unboxes and reviews a collectible rarity: a 1/6 scale replica of the Clavius astronaut spacesuit from 2001: A Space Odyssey! This is a unique collectible in that it’s a costume Adam is intimately familiar with, having obsessed over its details in the making of his own full-scale replica of the same silver suit. Let’s compare the two replicas!

Adam’s One Day Builds: 2001 Spacesuit Helmet Repair!

Even years after Adam has “completed” a cosplay or worn it at a convention, he from time to time returns to his costumes to further upgrade or refurbish them with new materials or updated reference. That’s the case with the helmet for his 2001: A Space Odyssey spacesuit, which needs a new sewn lining to better match how the originals were made. It’s time to take apart this unique helmet and make it more screen accurate, in a build that also gives Adam a break from his current costume project!

Adam and Andrew geek out over the design of the suit and its influences in aerospace history.
